This is another shot I took at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. The picture shows a machine which was used to manufacture light bulbs. The museum lighting is pretty dark and I didn’t have my tripod with me so I bumped the ISO to 2000 to get this shot. While the noise levels even at this ISO aren’t too bad, my thought when I took this was to create more of a ‘artsy’ image with heavy processing using Topaz Simplify. I was more interested in the shapes in the shot than trying to capture the machine in a more realistic fashion.
This shot shows a 200 Kilowatt Dynamo from the Edison General Electric Schenectady Works. This machine is on permanent display at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. The Henry Ford Museum has a wonderful collection of historical artifacts but I’m particularly drawn to the large generators they have on display. The size, color and design of these machines is truly impressive.
